Google Messages may soon categorise your SMS messages into various categories. According to various screenshots shared on Twitter, the Google Messages app may soon get categories like Personal, Transactional, OTP (one-time password), among others to segregate the types of texts that a user receives. The sorting of messages on the basis of content is probably aimed at making the overall user experience better. Google is already working on various features, like automatically deleting OTPs after 24 hours to unclog inbox, in the Messages app.
As per user reports on Twitter, Google is testing SMS categories in the Messages app and it may soon be rolled out broadly. Screenshots from that test have popped up on Twitter and show various categories, including All, Personal, Transactional, OTP, Offers and More. Various apps, like Truecaller and OnePlus Messages app, already come with SMS filtering options.
